       mount.nfs, mount.nfs4 - mount a Network File System


       mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnsh ] [-o options]


       mount.nfs  is  a  part  of nfs(5) utilities package, which provides NFS
       client functionality.

       mount.nfs is meant to be used by the mount(8) command for mounting  NFS
       shares.  This  subcommand,  however,  can  also be used as a standalone
       command with limited functionality.

       mount.nfs4 is used for mounting NFSv4 file system, while  mount.nfs  is
       used  to  mount  NFS  file  systems versions 3 or 2.  remotetarget is a
       server share usually in the form of servername:/path/to/share.  dir  is
       the directory on which the file system is to be mounted.


       -r     Mount file system readonly.

       -v     Be verbose.

       -V     Print version.

       -w     Mount file system read-write.

       -f     Fake mount. Don’t actually call the mount system call.

       -n     Do  not  update  /etc/mtab.   By default, an entry is created in
              /etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this option to skip
              making an entry.

       -s     Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail.

       -h     Print help message.

              Refer to nfs(5) or mount(8) manual pages.


       For  further information please refer nfs(5) and mount(8) manual pages.
